I bought a Belkin N300 as a replacement router. I hooked it up and all was good. When I tried to go to the configuration settings it asked for a password. In the past I had always just entered through this (left blank), but when I tried this one it seems it had a password preset in it. I have tried everything I could think of and cannot get pass the password issue. I keep getting a "password incorrect please reenter password" message. Any ideas or thoughts??

Most routers have these as defaults. If these don't work, refer to your router's manual or website.

... Unless you want to give away free internet to your neighbors, you might want to change those.

That would be your WEP, WPA, etc. I am talking in terms of your router's settings, like when you type your router's local ip in the address bar or routerlogin.net which I believe is for Netgear routers. You are then prompted for a username and password, which I posted some defaults for.

I found out that it was my browser causing the problem. When I opened the router with Google Chrome instead of IE I was able to use the blank password. Thanks for your reply though, I appreciate it.

Find or Change Your Internet Security Passphrase


1)Open the web browser that you use: Firefox,Google Chrome,IE,or Opera and type in the IP address for your router,and press the Enter key.
http://www.routeripaddress.com/ < Router ip addresses can be found here

2)A window will open and then type in your routers default username and password,and press the Enter key again

http://www.routerpasswords.com/ < Router usernames and passwords found here

3)Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open it to locate or change your WEP or WPA Security Passphrase.
Use WPA because it provides better security.

4)Write this Security Passphrase down and put it in a safe place to access when needed.

5)Save settings and close your browser.
